Tata Nexon is one the most awaited vehicles from Tata Motors. In efforts to leave no stone unturned at its launch, the automaker has been rigorously testing its vehicle. This time around the vehicle has been spotted undergoing road test in Pune.   

Based on what can be seen, the test mule is likely to be a top-spec version as it sits neatly on five-spoke 16-inch alloy wheels in silver finish unlike the older test mules which were seen with steel rims. The fresh image also indicates a dash of chrome being offered on door sills to give it a stylish appeal. The vehicle also gets plastic cladding on the side and wheel arches which flow all the way to rear under the bumper for a sporty look. The compact SUV gets a floating roofline which uplifts the rear section. The small rear window with blackened corners enhances its overall appeal.

Based on next-gen ‘Impact Design’ philosophy one of the striking exterior features will be the 'chrome humanity line' on the upper grille. The vehicle will get LED taillamps, though the front is not visible for now, as seen in older spyshots it will get projector headlamps with DRLs. The fresh design will help the company move away from its conventional designs and position the product as a strong competitor against the likes of Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport and the Mahindra TUV300.

Tata Nexon is expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel mill. The engines will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission and offer three drive modes.  Tata’s compact SUV is likely to be launched by second half of 2017. On the pricing aspect, the vehicle might be priced between Rs 6.5 lakh to Rs 9.0 lakh. Additional details about the vehicle will be known at a later date.
